. [applause] the president had his third and final debate with governor romney. and i had my one debate with congressman ryan. in that last debate, i was-or -- i was not sure whether other romney was there whether to endorse or debate obama. -- i was not sure whether romney was there to endorse or debate obama. it was kind of amazing. all those things i heard him say 04, i wasn't hurting -- heard him say before, i wasn't hearing him say them anymore. my grandfather from scranton used to say that -- beware of the converted. [laughter] he sure sounded converted, didn't he? i was wondering what happened to the mitt romney -- maybe casper, the family ghost of them. -- the friendly ghost took him. i don't know. as hard as they tried, they cannot run from the record. here is the truth. they had made it very clear they do not have the same view on women's rights as we do. on women's health, they want to turn the power back to the insurance company. back when they can charge wittman 50% more than men for the same policy. when they could label pregnancy pre-existing conditions. when the governor
several years. gov. romney does not think we need more teachers, i do. i think that is the kind of investment or the federal government can help. it can make a difference. as a consequence we will have a better trained work force, and that will create jobs because companies want to locate in places where there is a skilled workforce. >> i love great schools. massachusetts, our schools are ranked no. one of 50 states. the key to grade schools, is great teachers. i reject the idea i do not believe in great teachers. every state should make that decision on their own. the role of government -- look behind us. the constitution and the declaration of independence. is to promote and protect the principles of those documents first. life and liberty -- we have a responsibility to protect the lives of people. i do not believe in cutting the military. i want to maintain the strength of the military. the line that says we are endowed by our creator with our rights -- we must maintain our commitment to religious tolerance and freedom in this country. it also says we are endowed by our creat
a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can be really critical. host: thank you both for being with us on this news maker for this sunday. >> watch our newsmakers with rande paul again today at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. now watch our coverage of the presidential candidates, plus races from around the country. next on c-span, a third party presidential debate moderated by larry king, followed by the final presidential debate on foreign policy. and later, former g nor

grudgingly supporting mitt romney and that is it. there are lots of -- there is a lot of talk about swing states, those numbers have been the same way. in colorado our latest polling shows barack obama down by four points. these numbers are moving in similar fashion across most of the states, with one big exception, ohio. in a high of the numbers show that it is 48-48. there is great enthusiasm from republican voters across the country. the democrats appear to have a stronger ground game and we are seeing that especially in ohio. before we get into all of that, we have two guests and they've both say they have said things they regret they have informed me that is not accurate. governor rendell is someone who speaks his mind freely on nbc and obviously served as governor of the great state of pennsylvania. i want to start by asking them about their home states. can mitt romney win? >> i would say yes the pennsylvania is in play. and i would say that it is probably the best bellwether of what happened over the last three weeks. the their campaign is particularly active in a pennsylvan

, the super pak sets and in a huge wave is sumner. when romney wins, he does not have the money he needs to compete with obama. he relied heavily on super pacs to do is advertising. this is not technically coordinated advertising. trevor can get into the realities there. it had some obvious positive affect in holding parity with the president as he issued a blistering attack against romney this summer. it has shown to have clear weaknesses. both campaigns will tell you this. the super pac did not follow a simple narrative might be obama advertising did. the obama campaign built a story line starting in april that tried to portray mitt romney as a certain type of person and then they presented it as the months went on new evidence. there is the offshore tax havens, etc., and they built this story line in a swing state. the super pacs operating independently were not able to build that. you have situations in which two different super pacs would have conflicting add in the same market supporting mitt romney. one would say that barack obama is a really nice guy but he could not get the job
. governor romney said that was a tragic mistake. we should have left 30,000 troops there. with regard to afghanistan, he said he will end the war in 2014. governor romney said we should not set a date. when it came to osama bin laden, the president, the first day in office, i was sitting with him in the oval office and he called in the cia, my highest priority is to get bin laden. prior to the election, governor romney was asked the question about how we would proceed. he did not understand it was more about restoring america's heart. if you do harm to america, we will track you to the gates of hell. the president of the united states has led with a steady hand and a clear vision. governor romney, the opposite. the last thing we need now is another war. >> we mourn the loss of these four americans who were murdered. you take a look at what has happened in the last few weeks. they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six
romney is no longer for that tax cut that he has been talking about for a year and a half, the $5 trillion tax cut. it's evaporated. i do not know where it went. he said that tax cut he is calling for will be fully paid for by doing away with exemptions for the very wealthy people. the one exemption, the one loophole he has made clear that you cannot get rid of is the one that allows him to pay 14%. when asked what other loopholes he would cut, and you heard it last night, they could not name one, not one. that is why, folks, the bipartisan group called the tax policy center made up of former bush and clinton economic experts, that is why they said that the romney-ryan tax plan would in fact raise taxes on middle-class families with a child an average of $2,000 a year. $2,000 a year. by the way, every model looked at, from the american enterprise institute, says the same thing. folks, it is time to lift the burden of the middle class, not double down on the great recession that hit them.

. this presidential nominee, mitt romney, said he would get rid of planned parenthood. his party has said that there should be no exceptions for abortions. no exceptions for rape, incest, for the life of the mother. that is a serious problem for new yorkers and many women that i know. there has been an effort to undermine basic reproductive rights. look, these are fight and battles that my mother had and that my grandmother had. women of america believe that they should make their own decisions about contraceptions. they do not expect legislators to think that the bosses should make that decision. that is one of the reasons why andi am making sure that women are heard in this election. women have to vote and hold congressional members accountable. they have to be heard. these are fundamental issues of all right. you talk about the war on women. mitt romney says -- it is an it his hero got rid of equal pay for equal work. it is an issue of fairness. >> you are completely misleading this audience and people who you say employers could decide what a woman could do with contraception. it is c

&a." >> tomorrow, republican presidential candidate mitt romney gives a speech on u.s. foreign policy at the virginia military institute. live coverage of his remarks begins at 11:20 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> one of the things i have heard from a number of companies and individuals i have met with is that the fcc has sometimes not acted with much alacrity with respect to issues that are pending before the commission or in delaying action on other issues. i wanted to think about different ways the commission could speed up its processes. second, i think that one of the key things that the commission can do and should do is enable more dynamic industry by giving more spectrum into the marketplace. there are a number of proposals on the table. finally, i tried to think of different ways that the fcc can remove barriers on infrastructure investment. for every billion dollars in the the private sector spence, about 15,000 new jobs can be created. from a regulatory perspective, our goal should be to remove the barriers to enable the private sector to take those risks and make those multibi
, not they have a problem and point fingers. this is a big deal. it is very dangerous for the economy. mitt romney is not sitting in the seat where he gets a vote, but he should highlight the danger of this to the economy, the importance from here to the spring, and once you get to the spring, you have to do something. you have to commit to raising taxes and cutting spending. politicians hate those things. >> i totally agree with that. i think we need to hear from the candidates that they are serious about getting the deficits down to economically-sustainable levels over the next 10 years and not allow a short-term fiscal clipped to derail the economy. i would also like the default position to be that we revert to what it says in current law. i would like that to be the default, rather than business as usual. signal would you like to hear? >> we have really fallen into a horrible pattern of only making decisions when we face a crisis. the super committee last year was an attempt at a folk crauzx crisis. now we are fiscal cliff that aspirational labeled " -- will force crisis. the thing that would

the romney campaign or the obama campaign that would not fit within our definition because they are not trying to sell you something. [laughter] maybe they are trying to get to vote for them but you will not pay the money for the service. the survey calls also falls within that same issue. they are not trying to sell you something. there are people that have gone out to try to make -- to mask their sales goals as a political survey. those calls are covered and we are aware of those. >> our prohibition for political calls has been very successful over the 10 years i have been involved. even though we have had a number of legal challenges and still go through it, it is a pretty strong legal argument particularly as it comes to blasting out tens of thousands of these calls to people who don't want them in their homes. the fact that you've got federal statutes on the cell phone, i still think we will be a winner on the idea that you cannot call people at home to try to get a political free speech even though that is what the seventh circuit is still looking at. our argument is
for mitt romney. he will also talk about his role in congress and his views on foreign aid. that begins at 10:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> is a great source of information for the public. if you want to know anything about what is going on with legislation, with policy, c-span has recovered. i like book tv. that is my favorite. it is nice to see so many people that you read about. c-span offers exactly the news as it is happening. it does not offer commentary. it is just telling you the facts and showing you so you can make your own decisions. the decisions are not being told to you. to me, that is very interesting for people who want to be engaged in society and know what is going on. >> c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> now a look at the incomes of americans over the last four decades. robert shapiro talks about globalization from the the i.t. revolution and a shift in policies under the clinton and george w. bush administrations. from washington, this is one hour and 25 minutes. >> welcome, everyb
. >> to be clear, you were saying you're not supportive of how much effort the president or mitt romney have put into this so far? you are saying you're not a fan of either one's missions? >> it is more than just that. it is their teens who work with them. they have not come up with something that works. >> neither candidate right now has a comprehensive plan that meets the six principles we're talking about with the public. in the case of the president, he does not have a plan because his plan is his budget, but his budget which rejected unanimously by the senate and house, so he has to start over again. in the case of romney, he has a plan, he has not provided any specifics, and specifics he has provided, the numbers do not add up. that is what it is important but of them to be more specific, more substantive, most solutions oriented in the debates so we can make an informed choice about who to support, so they can claim they have a mandate, and they can use the bully pulpit to go to the people to talk about what we have been talking about and that people can then be involved to help get us a
